I could not stop reading this book once I started it. Siera was able to pull me in from the first few paragraphs and had me wondering what in the world was I going to get into. Kendall shows up for her new assignment in Key West, Florida on the worst possible day. Everyone has hunkered down for a huge storm and unless she wants to spend the next few days in the airport, she’s going to need some help.
Cutler is irritated as all get out that he has to go rescue the new guy, but when he finds out the new man on his crew is actually a woman, his attitude turns around instantly.
Kendall is affected by the instant chemistry as well but has instituted a ‘no men’ policy. She’s just gotten away from her abuse ex and she isn’t ready to lay her heart on the table again.
Siera takes a difficult subject and shows it’s gritty side without going too deeply into details, but giving the reader just to know the hell that Kendall has been knew and why Cutler is the breath of fresh ocean air that she needs (her grandma agrees)!
– read in one day, couldn’t put it down!
